‘Je suis désolé’ explores the relationship between Manet and Berthe Morisot; she was his model, muse, co-artist and probably lover. She disappeared into marriage and domesticity, and was eclipsed.


In the Urban Fox series these bold and beautiful opportunists slink into streets deserted by bankrupt revelers. These images are rapidly made; wet in wet, using techniques that record fleeting night visits. The foxes represent the rise of forces previously suppressed moving into the space left by a collapsing economy; creativity emerging and adapting and perhaps too something darker, fear of the future.
